Data Management

  • Research Data Management (UC Berkeley) - An online guide and consulting services to help you navigate the increasingly complex landscape of data planning, storage, and sharing.
  • Dryad - An open-source, research data curation and publication platform. Berkeley is a partner and offers Dryad as a free service for all Berkeley researchers to publish and archive their data. Datasets published in Dryad receive a citation and can be versioned at any time. Dryad is integrated with hundreds of journals and is an easy way to both publish data and comply with funder and publisher mandates.
  • DMPTool - An online tool for building data management plans with step-by-step instructions and guidance for meeting specific funding agency requirements.
  • EZID - A service that makes it simple to obtain and manage long-term identifiers (i.e., DOIs and ARKs) for digital content. Berkeley researchers can request a free account by contacting researchdata@berkeley.edu.
  • Data Purchase Program - The Library is accepting applications for a program to acquire data sets (through purchase or licensing) to support campus research needs.
